For potential inclusion of the case in the register, please obtain your patient's informed consent. The consent forms for parents/caregivers, underage as well as adult patients can be downloaded via the Consent Forms Register page.

For genetic diagnostics please use the following PDF Icon form. You may benefit from our program in genetic testing; for more information ask here.

We regret to have stopped our program on serum GM-CSF-autoantibodies and bronchoalveolar lavage surfactant proteins. Please do not send samples anymore.


2) Referral Letter/Epicrisis

Best in English so international experts can also contribute.


3) ChILD-EU visit sheets

Use the visit sheets for the first and also for consecutive visits. This way you automatically capture all necessary information.


4) Biomaterials

If you wish to send biomaterials please use the sample shipping sheet.

The following materials may be shipped at ambient temperature using regular mail:

  • EDTA blood (always triplett: patient (5 -10 ml) + parents (10 ml))
  • Pax/tempus tubes for RNA analysis
  • Lung tissue, wax block or/and slides of lung tissue if available
  • Lung tissue in formalin or/and glutaraldehyde
  • Skin biopsy in culture medium
  • Lung tissue in culture medium

The following materials need to be shipped frozen on dry ice:

  • BAL, frozen tissue samples

For details see the lab manual.

See also SOP on asservation of material.

Note: No delivery of samples possible on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.


5) Imaging (X-Ray-Thorax Series, CT)

The imaging data can be sent as CD by regular mail.

You may upload the DICOM files directly into the register if you already have a Data Capture Login.

However, as this may be cumbersome for the inexperienced, we recommend to send a pseudonymized CD, which we will upload for you.
